Integrating Fraud Testing into your Audit Program
While fraud investigators and auditors are familiar with the traditional fraud investigation performed in reaction to an allegation, a proactive approach integrates fraud testing methodologies into the audit program when there has been no allegation of fraud. The proactive approach can use either the traditional approach of testing controls or can conduct fraud testing designed to uncover fraud scenarios. The proactive approach focuses on red flags associated with data, documents or internal controls.
At this event, you will learn how to identify red flags associated with a fraud scenario, build samples, and design audit tests that focus on the mechanics of the fraud scenario. The proactive methodology focuses on how to tailor the audit approach to integrate fraud risk into your sampling and testing program.
The highlights of this seminar will include:
·         Fraud Risk Identification
·         Integrating Fraud into your Audit Program
·         How to Build a Fraud Data Mining Plan
·         Detecting Fraud in Disbursements
Whether you are a fraud investigator looking to expand your fraud monitoring capabilities or an auditor who would like to increase your fraud awareness and testing capabilities, you are sure to find something of interest at this event.
